ALLENDALE, Mich. (WOOD) Mary Free Bed is hosting the Junior Wheelchair Sports Camp this week. Junior Wheelchair Sports Camp celebrates its 30th year in 2014 and is the only one of its kind in Michigan.

More than 50 campers participate at Grand Valley State University’s (GVSU) Allendale campus learning and playing new sports like basketball and golf. Instructors, like the participants, are also physically-challenged, but provide much needed instruction, guidance and inspiration. The camp is made possible through a partnership between Mary Free Bed and GVSU.
